So great, first time I have ever written an online review

After stunning huevos rancheros this morning, I had to get online to tell you to read no further, click "add to cart" and start enjoying. This is a fabulous cookbook with a variety of recipes which are easy to follow. The book itself is in a format which also makes it great for browsing and picking up ideas to incorporate in the breakfasts you have already perfected. Love it so much I am planning to give it as a gift to every gourmand on my gift list in the coming year.

The best breakfast cookbook

I just bought this book at a bargain price, not expecting much from it. Boy, was I surprised!! This is a really good book full of original recipes, not your usual waffle and pancake breakfast cookbook. The pictures are absolutely beautiful, and the recipes look delicious. For the cookbook collector, this is a must.

Very Good

This cookbook has recipes from across America. It has recipes that are the old traditional such as pancakes and runs the gamut to recipes from various parts of the country. The recipes do not generally call for any out of the ordinary ingredients, they are easy to follow and the end results of every recipe I have tried turns out great. The pictures are lovely. The pages are uncluttered and easy to read. However, I particularly like that there are sidebars with interesting facts, menus from eating establishments say from the 1940's, etc. It makes for an interesting read as well as a nice cookbook. This is the cookbook I regularly turn to when picking out what I'm going to make for breakfast. It is well worth the money. Enjoy.

An inspiring collection

Most breakfast cookbooks are top-heavy with variations on the usual: lots of waffles, omelets, home fries, and muffins. This one is unique, because it collects a set of recipes you *wouldn't* have thought up on your own.For instance, it's the only book in which I've found a recipe for goldenrod eggs (hard boiled eggs in a cream sauce, served over toast, with grated egg yolks and paprika sprinkled on top) except for a 1942 WWII-era pamphlet my mom had. It's the only recipe I've found for dutch baby pancakes -- sort of a cross between a pancake and a sweetened popover, traditionally served with lemon and maybe a sprinkling of confectioner's sugar.Aside from completeness, the recipes are clearly written, entertaining (with sidebars that include breakfast menus from, say, a 1904 hotel menu), and educational.I have at least three or four breakfast cookbooks. This is the only one I use regularly.

Best Breakfast in Town

I was pessimistic about this cookbook. I have been looking for an excellent breakfast cookbook for years with no luck, until now. It has the best recipes. I always want to try out pricy cookbooks so I admittedly went to my local Borders, borrowed two recipes and tried them. They were excellent. I even did the unthinkable, I made a recipe to serve at a breakfast meeting without trying it first. The overnight french toast was very different and fabulous, including the presentation idea.I highly recommend this book!
